The London Open 2015 Q&A with artist Jane Bustin. A FAD Magazine Interview

The London Open Whitechapel Gallery’s triennial exhibition has just opened. 48 of the most dynamic and exciting artists have been chosen from an entry of over 2100 and this online interview comes from FAD Magazine …

1. Have you always felt yourself an artist?
Probably after the first week of art school when I realised you could actually just paint all day.

2. Can you tell us more about your work and what are the main ideas you would like to express?
I make abstract formal compositions reflecting on modernism and materiality. & I take influences from 14th century frescos, 15th century Dutch painting, iconography, modernist architecture and design, French modernist literature, dance, fabrics, books, hardware stores, Japanese ceramics, neon signs, cosmetics, sweet wrappers …

My main interest is to create a resonance within the work that goes beyond its material properties.

3. How do you start the process of making work?
The start of the work is always through the choice of materials.

4. Do you consider the viewer, when making your work?
Always and never, since I am primarily the viewer.

5. Name 3 artists that have inspired your work.
Masaccio

Vermeer

Rothko

6. What defines something as a work of art?
When you need to look again and again and something stirs in the pit of your stomach.

7. How was it finding out you had been chosen as part of The London Open?
Satisfying

8. How have you found working with the Whitechapel Gallery on the exhibition?
The curators and assistants have been superb, I have never before as an Artist in a large open exhibition felt so considered, involved and appreciated.

9. What plans do you have to continue to pursue your art career in 2015?
I am looking forward to exhibiting in November at the Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh in a show ‘Resistance and Persistence’ based on an essay by Sean Scully on Giorgio Morandi, including works from both artists.

10. Final Question – if you had £49,000 to buy art who would you invest it in?
Women Artists over the age of 49!

at

The Royal College of Psychiatrists
21 Prescot Street, London E1 8BB

Exhibition dates: 9th April to 9th May 2015
Private View: Thursday 9th April 6-8pm

The Cass School of Art MA Curating the Contemporary students present their first exhibition in collaboration with the Royal College of Psychiatrists that draws on the history of Melancholy & Raving Madness, two XVIII Century Caius Ciber statues, to investigate improvements in the treatment of mental health through contemporary art. The show features newly commissioned multi-media works by Mikey Cook,Travis JeppesenJérémie Magar and Daniel Silver, which respond to the statues and bring back their presence under a new, positive meaning. Each works re-interpret the statues, once emblems of disturbed individuals, to testify the sociological process triggered by psychiatry: a radical change of attitude towards individuals suffering of a mental disorder.

The project is born under the initiative of David Gryn director of Artprojx, for The Royal College of Psychiatrists.

For the exhibition Daniel Silver recreates their presence in the form of two marble sculptures, a furthering of ideas on his extensive body of work where faces and expressions are scrutinised to form contemporary busts. Another remix of historical references into a contemporary context is the attention to detail which Mikey Cook employs in his installation assemblages of particularities based upon his extensive research process.

Travis Jeppesen’s monologues will form the basis of a sound piece where the fictional nature of the exhibition will come into play by giving the inanimate statues a voice and life beyond the confines of their collective histories. Asking questions of ‘normality’ in relation to the exposure and subsequent concealment of Melancholy & Raving Madness, Jérémie Magar will show a series of interweaving video works; the mundane will be juxtaposed with idea of hyperbolic metafiction where “madness lays never far, and often within trivial normality.”

A Statue is Present runs alongside a series of public events, including a reading of Travis Jeppesen’s monologues by the artist himself.

The exhibition is accompanied by a publication featuring essays and writings by art historian and critic Richard Cork, Caro Howell, Director of the Foundling Museum, and artist, novelist and art critic Travis Jeppesen.

The exhibition is curated by Caterina Berardi, Rebecca Edwards, Jack Parrott and Mariaelena Soligo.
